Best Semi Hollow Body Guitar
: : I have a Levin W-32 guitar that I want to sell or fix up. It needs the action lowered. It needs the individual saddles adjusted or a neck reset since it has a gap at the heel of the neck where the neck meets the guitar body. The top is bellying up a bit - lifting up below the the bridge and I think it needs a truss rod adjustment. Trying to lower the action! Can this guitar be fixed or is it not worth fixing? How much should I sell it for? I have someone locally who want to buy it. Anyone else interested? Should I sell it on Ebay? For what price? It is in nice condition and was made before the Martin take over. It has a label inside that says made in Sweden. It is the sound of wood label. It does not say Martin. It does not have a serial #. Please advise if I should fix up or sell and for what price? Will this guitar increase in value over the next 10 years since it is of limited production and no longer made and has a solid 300-600 year old alpine spruce top and mahogany body? It has had one crack on the side repaired. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can give me some advice on a selling price or repair information or if you are interested in purchasing the guitar. Thanks for your reply. Alex.
: Hello Alex,
: On the subject of the Levin. It sounds to me that your guitar was subjectes to high temperatures for long periods of time. The tension of the strings has lifted the bridge and possibly bridge area and seperated the neck from the body. You will need to have the top steamed to be right again and the neck reglued. The cost of that operation by a professional luthier would be quite expensive to have done and needs done by someone who knows what their doing. As far as the value it's hard to say without seeing it but those facts should be considered if you are selling the guitar. The repaired crack doesn't help either. I say move it on and look for something else to play. A regular retail buyer will be afraid of it. If you can find a guy that knows what he's doing with it repair wise and he offers you a lower amount take the money and run.
The neck is set with a dove tail joint. Do not let anyone attempt to reset the neck that is not clear on how this is done.
Regarding the truss-rod, it is a single action compression rod, and it is adjusted from the peghead, under a little plastic hatch. The trussrod is for adjusting the curvature of the neck (the relief) and will not help if the action is to high. Any luthier would have the proper tools for the truss-rod adjustment.
The hole in the neckblock has nothing to do with any adjustments or disassembly, other than that it leads in to the dovetail pocket and is possible to use as inlet to inject steam when removing the neck.
I agree with the advice above, it is better to pass this on, it is a too good guitar to risk wrecking by doing things the wrong way. It deserves better.
I brought the Levin into the local repair shop to have the guitar set up and the action lowered. The repair person noticed that there was a hole inside the neck block where the truss rod looks like it would line up with. The hole was visible through the center sound hole. If you hold the guitar with the neck up and look into the sound hole you can see the hole in the block where it looks like the neck might be bolted onto the guitar. Does anyone know if the Levin W-32 can have the neck tightened by this hole that looks like it has a nut on the end of the truss rod? Is this a bolt on or glued on neck? The repair person also said he can cut the heel of the neck to reset the neck to lower the action if it is not a bolt on neck. I think I am explaining this procedure correctly. Any hints or suggestions? Please let me know if you know what has to be done to reset the neck? This guitar is really nice. It is a top of the line levin model with a unbelievable spruce top and mahogany back and sides. What should I do? I appreciate your suggestions. Help save a rare guitar.

My uncle has an old Greco he bought while in Japan in 1967. It is a model 140 serial #000121 greco. Can anyone tell me anything about this guitar? It appears to have mahogany back and sides, and a wide grained spruce top. I hate to say it but it looks like red spruce. I'm inclined to doubt that it is but that's what it looks like. Does anyone know?

Todays Retail value is hard to get a grip on as there arent many in circulation. However when it was new it was the finest and most expensive model Goya/Levin had to offer. In 1970 the price was 600 USD. I read a post somwhere that Goya have a bad second hand value, and the best thing is to keep them and play them yourself if you're in to music. In Sweden where I come from they are really hard to come by. So if you decide to sell I´d be happy to make an offer
i came across a goya dreadnought G200 SN# 94 0609 C.F.MARTIN&CO. my husband plays a little, i know NOTHING about this guitar can someone please help me?

I have a Goya model GG.4, No 1469 that is in basically mint condition other than a slight cupping on the bottom side of the sound hole which is barely noticeable and does not affect tone or playability and I am wondering if anyone has any idea of a value on this instrument.
Found this Goya treasure in a thrift shop without strings and filthy dirty. Cleaned it up and put new strings on and has strikingly beautiful sound and in great shape. Any information as to year made and approximate value for this T16 with serial number 315901
Your T-16 is a 1966.
As for value, my guess is 300 - 700 $ depending on condition.

Need value of a Goya G 110 acoustic guitar - Serial #307077 - excellent condition- Can anyone help?
I have been trying to see when this guitar was manufactured and possibly what it is worth. I can't seem to find any info on this model anywhere.
The G 140 or GG140 was the Goya version of Levin model 140, which was a 3/4 size student guitar developed by Levin in cooperation withthe swedish luthier Georg bolin.
As a Goya it was introduced in 1969 and most that I have heard about have had the "Distriuted by Dude" label.
As for value, i dont know, but it is a good little classical guitar in solid woods.

this is the first time ive ran across this site...ive been looking for a bridge at various local shops for my gm16....
Can someone tell anything about my guitar. year made and what is it worth thank you
You have probably have found out by now that your Goya was made in 1958.
I am curious to know what kind of top bracing M-50 has.
I used that one of Levin's top models (Kentucky) from 1955, and it had the ladder bracing.
Please let me know if you get this message.
Thanks so much.
Hello, I am also looking for information on this guitar, I don't have any to provide, but I was wondering if you had any places where I could find some info on it. Jason
I bought a Goya classical in the mid 70s from Dude, Inc in Kansas, serial #55738, but the model number (hand written by Dude on the label) is difficult to read. Seems to be G.G.9, or 669, or something like that. Does anyone know what model number this is and its date of production?

Hello,Does anyone have any information on a Goy G-3? I have one. It is marked made in Taiwan - G-3 . Thanks so much!Please email me.
I have a Goya G-10 that has the serial number;
It was made in Sweden and I bought it used in 1973. Any idea as to what year it was actually made?
: I have a Goya G-10 and date 1960 is stamped inside at the neck block
: I have a Goya G-10 that has the serial number;
: It was made in Sweden and I bought it used in 1973. Any idea as to what year it was actually made?
I have this well used, refinished G-10, with a number of large repaired cracks. So, no collector value. However I'm wondering when it was made. The inside label says serial # 96379. Part of the label is missing, so there could be one more number on the end of the serial number. My research shows they didn't go that high though. On the first line, below the word GOYA I can make out Goya Gu....INC., NEW YORK 10.... On the next line all that is there is the word SWEDEN. I'd post a picture but this post won't except it. Any info. about when it was made is appreciated.
Do not know the year of this model. Have had it for 25 years. Please advise. It is in perfect condition. I don't want to sell it, but am just looking for info. Has a beautiful sound
I have one of these.
Serial No 357234.
It tells me it's a model 119 but it looks different to the one pictured.
Mines a small 12 fret join, classical style bridge(not pin), paddle headstock, fancy tuning peg heads.
Any ideas guys?
Also how to value one of these? thinking of parting with it.
